Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig: upcoming artists-in-residence

Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig, Lake Hart, 2006

Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig are artists based in Katoomba, Blue Mountains NSW. They are currently researching a new body of work dealing the nature of travel and the expedition. This work will move on from their previous practice of exploring the relationship of the figure in various landscapes both real and imagined, to look more deeply at the ways in which we move through landscapes in space and time. As such creating a sense of journey is important to their current practice, as is seeking out new environments to reflect on the act of travelling.

Rachel Peachey and Paul Mosig have been working together as artists and designers for over eight years, initially as The Contextual Villains and currently as Racket. Their practice is diverse and runs the gamut of photomedia, collage, video, textiles and installation to website and book design. The basis for their work is often rooted in the discovery of human relationships with the environment, both real and imagined. They have explored these ideas in numerous exhibitions, short films, self publications and residencies nationally and throughout Asia. Most recently they produced a series of architectural projections for The National Portrait Gallery and the Museum for Australian Democracy as part of the Enlighten festival in Canberra.
